Slackware :: Midnight Commander Panel Focus?

Mar 25, 2011

MC remembers which panel (left or right) had the focus when closing. The next time MC opens that panel receives the focus. Is there a way to disable that option where the focus is always the left panel?There is a Command option (shortcut Ctrl-u) to swap the panels. I prefer MC simply start with the focus on the left panel.

OpenSUSE :: Color With KDE4 - Konsole And Midnight Commander

Mar 16, 2011

This problem has been bugging me since KDE4 starting shipping. In konsole, if you use the default black on white profile, and you start Midnight Commander, the color of the MC screen is the default blue color it has always been. However, if you change to the green on black profile, which is the one that I prefer, and you start MC, the blue changes to some unreadable light robin egg blue which is horrid.

I'm making a huge assumption here, but it looks like something is off with the green on black profile in Konsole. Try it yourself and you will see what I mean. This only started with KDE4, but it still persists through every version to current.

Ubuntu :: Midnight Commander 4.7 Theming (skinning) Is Broken On Lucid - No White Color

Jul 14, 2010

After upgrading to Lucid, MC looks ugly - like some colors are missed. Its very difficult to work in MC now - directories and files have same color for example. [fantomas@fantomas-laptop]:-boot.png. Also, applying different themes (skins) changes bottom bar (with menu: F1 F2 etc) button colors only, not affecting colors of panels. Install 4.7.3 build of MC from here: [URL]...

When running MC in xterm or gnome-terminal, it doesn't seem to allow the use of Ctrl-enter and Ctr-shift-enter to copy marked files to the command line.

General :: How To Exclude Sub Directories From ZIP CLI

Jul 22, 2010

I'm trying to create backup/archive my Ubuntu 10.04 system files (so I can restore it in case my system get corrupted). More specifically, I'm trying to zip the important files in my root directory not including my home directory (which includes my documents which I backup separately/more frequently) to an external hard drive attached via USB (called 'My Book').Since File Roller didn't give me quite the level of control I was looking for, I created a script that I could execute to backup and archive regularly.

Debian Configuration :: Exclude Directories From Bootstrap Copy?

May 24, 2011

I have successfully created an iso of my current running system using live build with the --bootstrap copy option..As expected, the image is gigantic. I would like to be able to use live-build to create copy-of-host iso's, but with specific options to -exclude specific pathways (ie. music folders, picture folders etc). Is there a way to do this? I did run a configuration and build using an option similar to that found in tar (something like -exclude=/home/user/music) and it ran through without any apparent errors, however, there was not any iso image to be found.

Software :: Using Find To Only Search Specific Directories?

how the "-prune" option works. I've searched quite a bit on line, and as far as I can tell, "-prune" works exactly the opposite as it says.

I'm using Apt-proxy, and I want to scan through the folders, and find files that end with "*.bz2" The problem is that the search takes a while because of all the "*.deb" files. Fortunately, they're stored in their own folder:

Programming :: Script To Search Users Home Directories For Certain Words?

Feb 20, 2011

I am trying to create a bash script that will search all users home directories on a system for words like quit, steal, kill etc. Pretty sure I'm going to be using grep /home. The only thing is that obviously a word like 'kill' could have normal uses too like "I need to kill the process." How would I go about flagging a user with the word/phrase found, and the path while also omitting legitimate uses?

General :: Get Files That Match ALL Patterns (using Grep)?

Jun 9, 2010

I want to traverse a directory and get a list of files that contain a set of patterns. I assumed I could use grep for this, but I having trouble getting grep to only return files that match ALL patterns. Here's what I've come up with so far:


grep --recursive --file=searchpatterns.txt --files-with-matches somedirectory/*

However, this gives me a list of files that match ANY of the patterns in the searchpatterns.txt file. I want to match ALL of the patterns. I've looked through the man page, but can't find anything that allows me to change the "OR" to "AND" for multiple patterns.
